In brief: 2 years ago

Your normal tests were 2 years ago, things change.
If your symptoms are troubling seek medical advice.

In brief: See a doctor!

If you chest palpitations or pain stop you from exerting yourself , i would not feel comfortable of you did not have them evaluated by a doctor. 2 years ago does not necessarily reflect what is happening today.

In brief: Not usually

Pvcs, especially with a recent normal stress test, are typically benign.
However, they can be harmful to your heart if they are very frequent (>20% of all beats). You should have a 24 hr holter to get an idea of how frequent your pvcs are, and to see if you have any other rhythm issues.
